It's called Coconut secret. Raw unheated coconut flour.  It's says 8 carbs and 8 dietary fiber which makes its zero. I'm going to take a pic a post it.  Btw I bought at whole foods

Hi Alex! Smiley

Now that's weird?... Undecided

While I was at Netrition.com, I happened to see "Coconut Secret Raw Coconut Flour".
http://www6.netrition.com/coconut_secret_coconut_flour.html

Also saw it here:
http://www.iherb.com/Coconut-Secret-Raw-Coconut-Flour-1-lb-454-g/24097?at=0

Both online stores claim it has 3 net carbs per 2 Tablespoons.

Are you looking at a different product???

Hi Alex! Smiley

I found the packager's web page for this product.
It also says that it has 3 net carbs per 2 TBSP.

http://www.coconutsecret.com/flour2.html

I'm beginning to wonder if you got a bootleg version of this product.

Where did you get it?... Whole Foods?
I would talk to them about this discrepancy.

Hi Doug! Smiley

Now I'm even more confused. Undecided

Below is a picture of that same product with it's nutrition label taken from;
http://www.coconutsecret.com/flour2.html

What does the nutrition label look like for the product label you have?

Tony I erased it from my email but Alex sent it to me from the back of the package..... it was definitely 8 and 8. Now with that said who knows which label is older or even correct. I've seen manufacturers change labels under pressure, in fact Umpa was looking at Ole tortillas yesterday and the label has now changed to reflect 5 net carbs per tortilla. Maybe Alex will resend the label pic.

Bertolli has changed their carb count on their alfredo sauces.  The sauces I had when starting FTS were 3 carbs for 1/4 cup...now the jars all read 2 carbs for 1/4 cup...I just used the last jar that had 3 carbs, it looks like they have decreased the amount of sugars they are using the recipe.

OK, Doug. Smiley

Since the packager may have changed the label, it's entirely possible that the one on the package Alex bought is accurate for that package.
But, no longer accurate for newer batches.

I just called Leslie's Organics (the packager) who states the label on the website is current and accurate.
But to solve the mystery, the nice lady I spoke with (Zoey) will contact the owner for a definitive answer and call me back.
She also stated that the product is pure coconut meat without any additives whatsoever.

When I hear back, I'll post her response.

The thought of a zero net carb flour is quite exciting!... I hope it's still true. Wink

Thanks Umpa.  That's a good idea.   I will make tomorrow. I volunteered at the soup kitchen today and got home late. I wish it was cold outside.

Hi Doug! Smiley

I love flax seed meal. But in some recipes, it tends to be a bit overpowering and heavy.
I was looking for a milder and lighter alternative to flax seed meal that is zero carb.
Coconut is uber mild.
